The smartphone will offer Game Turbo 2.0, DC Dimming, 3.5mm headphone jack and Hi-Res Audio certification to deliver a better experience to the customers. Game Turbo 2.0 feature comes as an upgrade to Game Turbo for MIUI that was introduced on the Poco F1. Redmi did not reveal the complete set of features which are added to Game Turbo 2.0.

Redmi K20 will also come with a 3.5mm headphone jack which has now become a rarity on smartphones. The Redmi K20 will feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset and up to 8GB of RAM; With such powerful hardware on board, having a 3.5mm headphone jack will be a delight for all those who're waiting for the smartphone.

Right after the OnePlus 7 series launch on May 14, Xiaomi India took to Twitter confirming that the Redmi K20 will make its way to the market. Xiaomi is teasing the Redmi K20 as 'Flagship Killer 2.0' hinting at an affordable price tag. Last year, Xiaomi disrupted the market with its Poco F1 smartphone as the handset offered Snapdragon 845 chipset at a starting price of Rs 20,999.

This is the first time Xiaomi is launching a flagship smartphone under the Redmi brand, and it's good to see the company bringing the phone to the Indian market as well.
